00:
00:18,854 -- 00:00:22,024

When you think of Cape Cod

you probably think of beaches...

2

00:
00:22,359 -- 00:00:25,111

lobster, little fishing villages.

3

00:
00:25,236 -- 00:00:28,989

Well, I grew up here, and

I mostly think of baseball.

4

00:
00:32,118 -- 00:00:35,664

The best amateur ball in the country

is played in the Cape Cod Baseball League.

5

00:
00:35,788 -- 00:00:38,290

Playing here is the chance of a lifetime.

6

00:
00:40,001 -- 00:00:43,129

I've been mowing this field in Chatham

since I was 14.

7

00:
00:43,212 -- 00:00:46,173

But this summer it feels a little different.

8

00:
00:49,052 -- 00:00:52,597

If you're a college player like me, the Cape

is where you want to go for the summer.

9

00:
00:52,682 -- 00:00:56,853

Little towns like Yarmouth and Dennis,

Wareham and Chatham.

10

00:
00:56,936 -- 00:00:59,981

Families open their homes to kids

from all over the country...

11

00:
01:00,106 -- 00:01:03,401

who come to show their stuff

to big league scouts.

12

00:
01:03,483 -- 00:01:05,902

Hi, I'm Billy Brubaker.

This is Miles...

13

00:
01:05,986 -- 00:01:07,863

Dalrymple. Love y'all's house.

14

00:
01:08,739 -- 00:01:10,032

So, how's the surf?

15

00:
01:10,950 -- 00:01:13,828

Some of us are farther away from home

than we've ever been.

16

00:
01:14,202 -- 00:01:17,956

Staying with people who have

strange ideas about being a house parent.

17

00:
01:18,207 -- 00:01:19,750

Are you hungry, honey?

18

00:
01:21,295 -- 00:01:23,797

Come here, I have something for you.

19

00:
01:26,216 -- 00:01:29,887

They say one in six big leaguers played

in the Cape League.

20

00:
01:30,053 -- 00:01:32,764

I can't count all the ones

I've seen play on this field.

21

00:
01:32,930 -- 00:01:39,061

Bagwell, Bell, Biggio,

Nomar, Mo Vaughn, the Big Hurt.

22

00:
01:41,689 -- 00:01:45,526

I've watched so many dreams

come true and die...

23

00:
01:45,652 -- 00:01:48,071

on the ball fields of the Cape.

24

00:
01:48,238 -- 00:01:51,992

Hard as it is to believe,

now it's my turn.

25

00:
01:52,993 -- 00:01:55,746

Now I'm the guy the scouts

will be watching.

26

00:
01:57,040 -- 00:02:00,877

Now I'm the guy putting it on the line

every time I take the mound.

27

00:
02:04,296 -- 00:02:06,507

This is my last shot to make it.

28

00:
02:07,342 -- 00:02:09,761

The last house on the block,

you might say.

29

00:
02:15,642 -- 00:02:18,353

While it might be an advantage

to sleep in my own bed...

30

00:
02:18,520 -- 00:02:22,774

the night before the first team meeting,

I figured I'd leave nothing to chance.

31

00:
02:22,857 -- 00:02:25,693

I've been accused of being

my own worst enemy.

32

00:
02:25,778 -- 00:02:28,489

So this time I wanted to focus...

33

00:
02:28,572 -- 00:02:31,951

to make sure nothing got in the way

of the most important summer of my life.

34

00:
02:33,701 -- 00:02:35,245

Good morning, Sunshine.

35

00:
02:38,123 -- 00:02:39,583

All right, come on!

36

00:
02:42,545 -- 00:02:45,297

Look. No offense, Dede,

but I can't do this tonight.

37

00:
02:46,131 -- 00:02:48,759

Ryan, where's your team spirit?

38

00:
02:48,885 -- 00:02:51,263

I'm dressed for practice tomorrow, man.

39

00:
02:51,345 -- 00:02:54,014

I'm dressed for practice.

40

00:
02:53,055 -- 00:02:56,475

I'm staying here tonight.

I can't be late.

41

00:
02:57,102 -- 00:02:58,144

That's cool.

42

00:
02:58,645 -- 00:03:02,190

Sorry. We just

wanted to celebrate our buddy.

43

00:
03:02,189 -- 00:03:06,235

Local boy playing for the Chatham A's

with all those fancy college kids.

44

00:
03:08,029 -- 00:03:10,282

We're very proud of you, Ryan.

45

00:
03:10,531 -- 00:03:14,994

I'm serious! I made a vow

to swear off women and beer.

46

00:
03:15,245 -- 00:03:18,164

Y'all gotta get out of here. Go.

47

00:
03:18,583 -- 00:03:21,252

All right, we're out.

Let's go, come on.

48

00:
03:25,006 -- 00:03:27,383

It's your last chance, lawn boy.

49

00:
03:28,759 -- 00:03:31,637

Because I'll be working

on the vineyard all summer long.

50

00:
03:32,012 -- 00:03:38,476

I just want you to take a good, hard look

at exactly what you're passing up on.

51

00:
03:39,978 -- 00:03:42,522

So as you spend the rest of your life...

52

00:
03:42,940 -- 00:03:47,403

riding that mower up and down

the great grass of the Cape.

53

00:
03:48,696 -- 00:03:52,450

l want you to have that one...

54

00:
03:52,534 -- 00:03:56,872

burning image in your mind

of the one that got away.

55

00:
03:59,540 -- 00:04:02,919

All right.

One beer. That's it.

56

00:
04:03,169 -- 00:04:05,421

Can I do our special style?

57

00:
04:06,173 -- 00:04:07,758

Special style.

58

00:
04:13,847 -- 00:04:15,098

Domo, honey.

59

00:
04:16,142 -- 00:04:18,061

Are you awake?

60

00:
04:25,276 -- 00:04:28,363

Domo, I know you're not sleeping.

61

00:
04:29,613 -- 00:04:34,201

Okay. Sleep tight.

Don't let the bed bugs bite.

62

00:
04:38,539 -- 00:04:40,374

I've got to get some sleep.

63

00:
04:42,252 -- 00:04:43,336

Don't.

64

00:
04:44,254 -- 00:04:46,589

Wait! Why do girls

always take my underwear?

65

00:
04:47,298 -- 00:04:49,592

Because boxers are

more comfortable.

66

00:
04:55,975 -- 00:04:58,727

Fine. I'll wear yours.

67

00:
05:07,485 -- 00:05:08,736

This is my thong.

68

00:
05:09,405 -- 00:05:11,824

I feel alive in my thong.

69

00:
05:14,661 -- 00:05:16,121

I can run in my thong.
